Package: xdkcal
Version: 0.9d-2.2
Severity: normal


While scanning some packages I found the following piece of code which leads 
to a buffer overflow when an overly long HOME env var is used.

Affected code:
> FILE *init_file(char *mode)
> {
>     char file[512];
>     FILE *fp;
>     strcpy(file,getenv("HOME"));
